Calendar view inside addon

Since version 4.1.1 a Calendar View inside Projects and a Calendar Dashboard Gadget is available, where we can get an overview of the situation at any time.


In order to be able to activate this view, the tasks in the project must have the DueDate value set. In this case we have the possibility to display a calendar with this information with colors based on the status color.


As shown in the following GIF, we can display the calendar by selecting, from the left-hand sidebar, the Add-ons item and from there the new Calendar item.
